Working with APT and Taliesin Preservation Inc., NCPTT is developing a workshop on the preservation of wood in historic structures that will be held at Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin near Spring Green, Wisc. Participants will gain a better understanding of how the various professions can interact from conception through completion to have a successful preservation project that has wood as a principle component. The workshop will take place early summer 2010.

  1. Steven b says:

    preservation of wood/history is a far better idea than tearing down and putting up a concrete replacement.

  2. In New England we have many historical homes, buildings and sites listed on the Historic Register. Salem Mass., Plimoth Plantation, Mystic Seaport and Sturbridge Village all offer windows into history. I especially like that school children go on field trips to these sites and realize the importance of historic preservation for future generations.

    I really like to work on historic buildings you really get a sense of what it was like to work back then

    Maintaining the historical structure is not easy. For the sake of the future generation, these historical buildings must be preserve.
    At this modern days, it is not easy to get a touch on the wall of the historical building. This makes me feel sad when they are tearing down the 250 years old building at my town.

    I remember my father taking me to this huge, hundred year old church in northern Florida and trying to explain all that went into constructing, and maintaining, a structure of that age and size made almost entirely out of wood. I agree that it is crucial that historical wooden structures be properly restored and maintain and applaud such efforts.

  6. FL Studio says:

    I agree with Steven B, preserving wood has many benefits as opposed to this whole concrete thing…Back in the day, buildings were built way different than now, and it seems we have lost the importance of these buildings, they should not be torn down unless there is some safety concern
